Good Sam Sr. Youth Requests Prayers and Support for Mission Trip

During a recent Good Sam Council meeting, Isaiah Mack outlined a request to the council to present his mission trip to Costa Rica this summer to the congregation. With their approval, he’ll present his request for prayers and support with this mission trip this Sunday.  Isaiah will be traveling to Costa Rica in June with other students from his Honors Spanish class at The King’s Christian Academy to assist with home building for a needy family and spreading God’s Word.

With the deadline for funds due April 15th, Isaiah writes about his plans, hopes and request:

“I have an exciting opportunity coming up this summer that I’d like to share with you.  As part of my growing desire to join God in serving people in need all over the world, I will be traveling to Costa Rica with other students from my Honors Spanish class at The King’s Christian Academy for a 1-week service project.  Our team of students and staff will be departing on June 11 and returning June 16.  I am writing this letter to invite your financial partnership with me in this endeavor.

The trip has been planned and designed by The King’s Christian Academy in partnership with Joshua Expeditions, a Christian non-profit organization.  Since 1997, Joshua Expeditions has been providing Christian schools with quality educational travel designed to inspire purpose in the lives of others.  They have designed this trip to provide us with the best experience possible in the 6 days that we will be traveling, allowing us to serve the people of Costa Rica and share with them the love of Jesus Christ.  You can learn more about them by visiting their website at www.joshuaexpeditions.org.

Our days in Costa Rica will be spent building a home for a needy family.  The family will be presented with their home on our 5th day, then we will help the family move their belongings into their new home.  As we work to meet the physical needs of the local residents, opportunities will open to meet their spiritual needs as we explain that Jesus is the reason we choose to serve them.  It is my hope that God will be expanding our hearts and giving us a broader perspective of His involvement in the whole world.

I am writing to ask for your help in getting to Costa Rica.  To participate in this trip I would love your prayers for my preparation and travels.  I also need to raise money for airfare, room and board, and other travel expenses.  I will need $2,750.00 by April 15th to join the trip. 

Thank you so much for prayerfully considering if this is something you would like to participate in.  May God bless you for your time and support.”

Sincerely,    Isaiah Mack
